Q:

Do any of your evaluation kits for IMUs come with non-magnetic screws?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A:

The ADIS16IMU1/PCBZ and EVAL-ADIS presently come with stainless steel screws, which can have a small impact on local magnetic fields. For applications that need optimal magnetometer performance, consider using aluminum machine screws.  Here is one source for these types of screws.
